Dool – Summerland (Prophecy)

It’s true that there is not a huge amount to look forward to at the moment and we have to take the pleasures where we can. Thank goodness for music and this is something that I and no doubt anyone… Continue Reading →

Lotus Thief – Oresteia (Prophecy)

When dealing in Avant-garde and Progressive Metal it is of course important to be both of those terms and carve out your own niche therein. With their third release this highly talented American band do just that. Opening your album… Continue Reading →

Sun Of The Sleepless / Cavernous Gate – S/T Split (Prophecy)

What we have here is the meeting of two old friends with their respective projects: Sun Of The Sleepless (Schwadorf of Empyrium, The Vision Bleak and Noek) and Cavernous Gate (S.K. Of Helrunar). Does it fit together? Are they worthy… Continue Reading →

Völur / Amber Asylum – Breaker of Rings / Blood Switch (Prophecy)

Potentially we have here a temple of weirdness and melancholy as we have a combination of Canadian “doom experimentalists” Völur and San Franciscan “neo-classical ambient collective” Amber Asylum. Reading up on the background, the two bands involved recognise the same… Continue Reading →

Pencey Sloe – Don’t Believe, Watch Out (Prophecy)

Pencey Sloe sounds to be the name of a US private detective but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact it is a Parisian musical trio which comes with the approval of Alcest and plays dark and ethereal… Continue Reading →

Thief – Map of Lost Keys (Prophecy)

Dylan Neal’s other band, Botanist, might not be to everyone’s taste (hammered dulcimer black metal anyone?) but it certainly makes a change from listening to a very long line of black-metal-o-likes queuing up to deliver their take on something that… Continue Reading →

Silence In The Snow – Levitation Chamber (Prophecy)

After being the equivalent of a persona non grata for quite some time, goth rock seems to be having a revival at the moment. That’s fine with me, because I like goth rock. New bands from the US seem to… Continue Reading →

Moon Far Away – Athanor Eurasia (Prophecy)

384,400 KM to be precise and yes that is far away. Getting that out the way, here we have some gorgeous folk music from Arkhangelsk Russia to contemplate but it is one where we are told East meets West so… Continue Reading →

Stille Volk – Milharis (Prophecy)

Whatever the view is outside your window it’s time to cast it off and dream of the snow-capped mountains of The Pyrenees.  We are about to venture into the world of Stille Volk and it is an olden one without… Continue Reading →

Bethlehem – Lebe Dich Leer (Prophecy)

1991 The year of Bethlehem’s inception. Since then they have released a plethora of LP’s, splits and EPs. The style within those recordings has whipped between DSBM, Industrial, Black Metal and the outright weird. In 2016 the present incarnation with… Continue Reading →

Valborg – Zentrum (Prophecy)

Well this is a case of not judging a band on one album, that’s for sure. My only encounter with Valborg before this new seventh album was with the German groups 5th one Romantik. I guess that showed the bands… Continue Reading →

Dool – Love Like Blood (Prophecy)

I think it is fair to say that a follow up to Dool’s debut album Here Now, There Then which arrived early 2017 is highly anticipated. It was a magical album and definitely touched a lot of hearts with its… Continue Reading →
